Between the sleep deprivation and new demands on your schedule, it’s no surprise if you have “mommy brain.”
Common symptoms of “mommy brain” are:
- Forgetting WHY you walked into a room.
- Telling your child they would get a punishment, then forgetting what the punishment is.
- Driving around, then forgetting where you’re going and which child you need to pick up.
- Waiting for a friend at a restaurant, wondering where they are then realizing YOU are at the wrong restaurant. (That’s what I did just last month!)
